1.) Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipsticks (Php450, I got this from @styoeli on Instagram)
These are of course here on the list because they’re rumored to be the exact same products as Kylie Lip Kits, only cheaper! While I have a lengthy discourse as to how I think of the rumors, it’s undeniable that these are great sources of dupes because they’re affordable, work similarly well (although not as well), and come in so many shades that if you’re creative you can dupe virtually any shade in Kylie’s collection without much difficulty.
This is Lumiere 2 (top) and Trap (bottom).
Lumiere 2 is cooler and darker than Candy K while Trap is lighter and grayer than Candy K. Trap was not as close of dupe as I had thought it would be.
And I think the wands will show you what I mean.
Even the swatches will show the same thing! Candy K really is much warmer then Lumiere 2 and more coral and brown than Trap. Candy k is also a more earthier shade… I tried mixing Lumiere 2 and Trap but it just gave me a hybrid that’s still too cool and too dark to pass off as Candy K. These are good shades if you’re looking for stuff in the mauve brown family, though.
The lip kit is so expensive that I just didn’t erase the swatch in case I needed it hahahaha. But this is Pure Fire and Pure Rouge.
Too bad though that there’s only one Mauve in the whole collection! I wish that there were other mauve shades because they’re so pretty!
It really just needs to be a little more pink and it can already pass as Kylie’s Candy K!
I am guessing that for Candy K, though, it’s probably NYX’s Lip Lingerie which may have the shades for this kind of color. If you compare Candy K to the others it really is much browner than them.
